Smith and Irvin teamed up to help lead the Cowboys to three separate Super Bowl wins in the 1990s and have remained the deepest of friends far into their retirement from football. A player near and dear to the hearts of the entire nation of Cowboys fans, Smith has always been the epitome of what a football player and a human being should be.

While it is unclear when Mary Clements Smith passed, what is clear is how unfathomably difficult it must be for the Smith family to lose her.

Emmitt himself posted a heartfelt message on Instagram to honor his mother.
